Today we took Marcus’s parents to Lynn Canyon Park, a popular destination among locals and tourists. The 101 year old park (it opened in 1912) offers great hiking opportunities along its several trails where you can see a lot of 80 to 100 year old trees.
First of, all we crossed the suspension bridge which is about 50 metres above Lynn Creek and offers fantastic views of the creek and its surrounding nature.
From there we turned left to have a leisurely walk to the 30 foot pool. In summer there will always be people swimming in the water but this time, only a dog had some fun in the cold water. To enjoy the natural beauty there, we sat on the bench overlooking the pool and had a light lunch before making our way back towards the suspension bridge.
Once there, we did not cross the bridge but went straight on towards the Twin Falls bridge to admire the view of the waterfall.
The way back up to the parking lot was quite steep – about 200 steps… Surprisingly enough, it was much easier than in summer.
As it was only early afternoon, we decided to pay the Vancouver Aquarium a visit…
